RE: How to remove the integrated roll
Time has a way of introducing changes. Sometimes thinking differently is tough and not necessarily desirable. Nevertheless, you would better off working with a newer way of doing things, as most late model sails are designed around the hardware implemented to achieve optimum results. In reality, sail designers are improving the situation all the time, and we can readily leverage off that. Sometimes the concept of a minute or two spent in rigging details can offer significant benefits. I would recommend losing the hook, and ulltimately thinking more modern in your approach.
